Cyber Speedway is another entry in the ever-growing catalog of futuristic racers coming out for the 32-bit systems. Travel from world to world racing other cyber-drivers. Adjust your brakes, engine and steering to better suit your style of racing. A big corporate guy is also following your progress, which makes you wonder if you're only a puppet in a larger picture.... It looks like Cyber Speedway will be another attempt to match up with Wipeout from Psygnosis.

Cyber Speedway is a futuristic Saturn racing game that has you flying something that looks like a giant potato bug with fins. An evil corporate type is up to no good (surprise, surprise) as you travel from planet to planet engaging in fierce racing competition. Before every race, converse with the natives and get some advice from your mechanic, who looks suspiciously like a cyber-Wilford Brimley.
This may be the Sega answer to Sony's Wipeout, but Sega only deserves partial credit. In just about every area in which the former inspires awe, Cyber Speedway only imitates in a mediocre way. Your ship doesn't handle as well as it could; the graphics are a little choppy, and sometimes it's hard to distinguish the track from the background. On the upside, there does appear to be more depth to CS than to Wipeout. The story, although a tired cliche, still holds the game together. Unfortunately, it unfolds much too fast because of the ease of gameplay.
